WBO junior welterweight champion Timothy Bradley (28-0, 12KOs) has issued a warning to WBO welterweight king Manny Pacquiao (54-3-2, 38KOs), to be prepared for a rough fight on June 9th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Bradley plans to take every tool away from Pacquiao, target his body, apply pressreu and if Pacquiao is not presenting a threat with his well known power combinations - then Bradley will bring the fight to the champion.
"I systematically break guys down. I get in the ring, they said that I don't have any power but once I get in there and they feel my strength - I start laying hands on them and then they start getting defensive and start holding me. In my last couple of fights, guys were just holding me. It makes it hard for me to really get my work in. I systematically break 'em down. I take every punch away from them, starting with the jab. I take that away. Then I take their straight left away, go to the body and break 'em down....apply the pressure. And if he's not hitting hard in there and I don't feel threatened - I'll take it to you," Bradley said.
